Another point they made is, what does Conservative mean today? When the Conservative movement began, it meant smaller Fed Government, Free Market Economy, more personal freedom and being fiscally responsible. Qualities that have left the GOP. Yet, now we have those points as a ralling cry of the GOP but, are they serious? Can we trust them? All the Presidential wannabes(except Ron Paul) were big spending, more Fed government intrusion and now they say they are different.
I think they just jumped on to the bandwagon ralling for a smaller Fed Government because it has become so popular to say so(except Ron Paul who has always believed in a smaller Fed Government and mandatory balanced budget).
Of the GOP wannabes, only Dr Ron Paul was against intervention in Iraq and A'stan. Two wars that have cost us over 4,000 dead and 3 TRILLION borrowed dollars and has upset the balance of power in the mideast. One reason Iran is so out of control today is because we have neutered Iraq.
